post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Hello, I'm doing this thread because i want to find the correct headphones for my IPod Classic, I'm not sure of what kind of headphones should buy so i will describe my situation:

 

Where I will use it:

  • In bus
  • Train
  • Street
  • School
  • Anywhere else 

What kind of music I hear:

  • Rock (Hard, Psychedelic, Acid, Classical) [Some like Jimi Hendrix, or The animals, Blue Cheer]
  • Dubstep 
  • Folk [Bob Dylan,  Allman Brothers Band]
  • Other bands like The Police,  Cream, Draft Punk, Pink Floyd....
  • And a thousand more redface.gif

Price range: from 0 to 450 U$D

 

What I'm looking for:

I was thinking in a over-ear ones, like Sennheiser Hd25 1 II or Sennheiser Hd 518, but i want to be sure that no else better for the same price.

Also it will be better if it had some of style ph34r.gif

Hi H3ndrix

 

I take the bus to and from school most days and have similar music preferences, so hopefully you are looking for what I was, in my headphones. I would recommend looking into in-ear headphones as they will block out noise quite well, which I assume is what you want when taking the train, bus, etc.

 

I personally own the Westone 2, they are extremely comfortable, isolate well (depending on the tips used) but lack a little bit of bass, for some genres of music e.g. Trance/Techno. If you're looking for a more bass heavy headphone, the Westone UM2 are the better option.

 

Hope this helps

 

James

Thanks DenonFnatic, but i was looking for an over-ear ones because I like the performance that it has in the higher notes and in the bass, and i can expend a bit more of money and buy me ones that do that better that the in-ear ones.

Thank you for answer.smile.gif

Great, I like the Sennheiser HD 518, I see prices and I tell you, thanks PurpleAngel

Being open means it will leak a lot of sound and let in a lot of noise, not suitable for street.

 

In any case, is your price range in USD or ASR? It makes quite a difference, I think.

Its in USD, U$D: Price range: from 0 to 450 U$D

What kind of model do you recommend me?

Thanks Bill-P

'Style' is subjective - and I'm surprised no one has yet suggested Koss PortaPro. It's cheap, on-ear and one of the best for it's price - plus I think they're stylish in a retro way without being too hipster. 

They're slightly over-bassy which is good for noisy environments. 

 

A fairly good full size headphone is the Panasonic RP-HTX7 - it's more retro stylish with a fairly good sound, but not the absolute best sound for the money, but one of the most isolating and comfortable.

Great. If you can find one, I'd wholeheartedly recommend the Audio Technica ES10 for that price range.

 

Also I found it kind of odd that you mentioned the Sennheiser Momentum being outside of your price range considering it's typically around $300 new.

I'm guessing that the extra zero after '45' was a typo. Most people would have said $300-450, not $0-450. I thought that was fairly obvious after he said the Momentum was out of his range... probably should have asked him about it redface.gif

Yeah, but he wrote 0 - 450 U$D again when I asked him...

 

Plus Sennheiser HD25-1 II is definitely not $45, but he included it in his original post.

Thanks Bill-P, the Audio Technica ES10 are a good option, but I can't find it here in Argentina :S

I said that the Sennheiser Momentum are out of my range because they are 300, that's currency in Euros, an Euro is AR$6.20, and the dollar is AR$4.70, indeed this out of my range because the coin value Isn't the same..

Thanks again ;)
